    What do you think which social network provides best quality traffic? <br>I have pages on facebook and google plus, as I observed google plus provides more targeted traffic and adsense pays more for the clicks of that traffic. <br>What's your experience? <br>

    A social network is just a website. It's all about who you target that determines the quality of traffic, not the site.

    Exactly, and it depends about your niche too. Some social media websites (like Pinterest) might be better for gaining targeted followers fastest in your niche, but it's all about who you target in the end.

    I knew this was a noob thread before even reading it. There is no such site as "best" it all depends on niche, time invested in the site, money you invested on the site and much more.

    pin has been the best for me because of the nature of the site.
    re-pinning is the main feature so your pins can definitely go viral.
    and make sure your pins are enticing so people want to click through to your site.

    I think it is actually the content that rules, no matter which domain you use :)

    Google+ is the best one, for me. By far. I really like Twitter, but Google+ is better.

    how good is your content ?

    Social Sites are a necessary evil at the moment because of what they might become .. and you need them to help your overall reach -- but which one is the best for you depends on your niche.

    Social traffic can be shit, yes, but you are definitely wrong that only google can give you quality traffic. That's exactly what google wants you to think and that's why virtually all other traffic sources can cause an adsense ban through a direct or indirect association with something in their TOS which they can use to "justify" it.

    Social traffic is the only other option and it definitely works if you do it right. I'm making a killing with a couple adsense sites and neither one of them rank for anything right now on any search engines. It takes a lot of testing and trial and error, but social traffic can be almost as targeted as search traffic and there's WAY more volume for many niches.

    Yeah, Google+ seems to be more effective. Facebook is somewhat less serious for that.

    Just echoing what others have already said above, but it all depends on the nature of your site and what you are trying to achieve.

    For me personally Pinterest has been the best because a few of my sites all revolve around a certain niche which is pretty much women only and can be communicated well through pictures. For niches like seo or something Pinterest would probably be shit because the user base isn't interested in addition to it being harder to directly communicate through pictures.
